Pluralism, Democracy, and Justice (PDJ)

PDJ specializes in contemporary political philosophy. Taking a problem-oriented approach, PDJ emphasizes the role that political philosophy can and should play in dealing with the real world challenges and conflicts of our time. Our research includes topics such as relational and distributive justice, democratic theory, the rights of vulnerable minorities, political polarization, extremism and radicalization, migration and integration, and the nature and jusification of territorial rights.

PDJ is currently led by Kim Angell and Kerstin Reibold.

Collaboration projects:


Civic Constellation III: Democracy, Constitutionalism, and Anti-Liberalism. Hosted by University of Malaga (2019-2022)

The project aims at: Exploring the academic and public debates on the relations between democracy, constitutionalism, and anti-liberalism in Europe from a comparative, transnational perspective. Advancing new scholarly insights based on conceptual, argumentative, and rhetorical inquiries to shed light on the normative assumptions underneath recent anti-liberal and populist claims. Contributing to the public and academic awareness of the values of constitutionalism and the rule of law to the advancement of democracy. 

Indigenous Citizenship and Education (ICE). Hosted by the Center for Sami Studies (SESAM), UiT (2017-2022)

How does the education system treat indigenous peoples and indigenous issues? The project has three parts. Part One consists of political and philosophical analyses of concepts like ‘citizenship’ and ‘indigenous people’, connected to education and rights; and normative theories on the conditions of justice and equal rights. Part Two investigates how citizenship education happens in practice. Part Three is concerned with how the knowledge surrounding indigenous issues is created. 

COST Action RECAST: Reappraising Intellectual Debates on Civic Rights and Democracy in Europe. Hosted by University of Malaga (2017-2021)

Reactions to the growing conflicting claims on civic rights of individuals and groups in secularized societies framing new forms of ethnic, religious, and civil diversity, have been theorized largely in unrelated spheres. Very rarely have responses been produced by humanities’ and social sciences’ joint approaches. By advancing this form of cooperative research, COST Action seeks to bridge the gap that separates politics and policy action from humanities and social science research, and then provide new insights into the links (theoretical, political, and institutional) between civic rights and democracy in Europe.
